Look at the tree

Next time, on a hot day, if you happen to stop under the shade of a big tree, just look up and see: does the tree enjoy its own shade? The sun is blazing down mercilessly on the tree, which is absorbing the heat and giving us shade. Does it charge us parking fee for standing under it? Does it ask for sympathy or help when the summer makes shed its leaves? Does it get angry with the world when white ants eat away its inner core, or pollution covers it with layers of dust?

The tree has life. It is just that we do not understand it, ignorance is not excuse. The same way, ignorance of the feelings of people around us is no excuse. There are many humans who give us shade, shall we thank them in some small way?

Sreedhar, Director of Online Courses and Online Counselling by email of Banjara AcademyLeading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Sreedhar MA
